1970s Sitcom Flop - Sugar Time Here's a short-lived sitcom from the 1970s that, if it's remembered at all, it's mostly recalled by teenage boys. Sugar Time aired on ABC for just 13 episodes in the 1977-78 season. The show revolved around three attractive young ladies who formed a musical group called Sugar, but also held regular jobs. The threesome tried to break into the singing business by working free of charge at a local nightclub. The show's stars were Barbi Benton (as Maxx), Marianne Black (as Maggie), and Didi Carr (as Diane). Four episodes were aired in the summer of 1977. According to the reference book Total Television, the remaining nine episodes were scattered "irregularly thereafter." This is the opening montage. (An odd snippet of trivia: Didi Carr did very little acting after Sugar Time was cancelled in May 1978. She married a rabbi in 1984--and apparently is still wed to him--but she became a staunch atheist! That must be awkward!)

George C Scott Snubs Oscars - 1971 George C. Scott did not like the Academy Awards. He disliked the whole concept. Scott referred to the spectacle of Oscar Night as "a two-hour meat parade" that was "offensive, barbarous, and innately corrupt." Here's a clip of the ceremony from 1971 where Scott won the Best Actor Oscar for his standout performance in Patton. To no one's great surprise, Scott wasn't present for the ceremony. When his name was announced as the winner, Scott was at home on the east coast fast asleep.

Funny Partridge Family Moment In this 1971 episode of The Partridge Family (titled Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Partridge), Keith yearns to be a wise mentor to his younger siblings. Therefore he is thrilled when Chris and Tracy seek his advice in a matter of "career counseling." The payoff is one of the funniest lines uttered on this sitcom (or any other that I can think of).

Bobby Fischer and Bob Hope Shortly after Bobby Fischer's famous victory over Boris Spassky to win the world chess championship in 1972, the 29-year-old Fischer--who was widely regarded as a Cold War hero in the western world--appeared on a Bob Hope special in this terrific skit. (Listen to the long ovation he gets when he first appears!) Fischer showed unexpected but wonderful humor, comedic timing, and an endearing personality. Sadly, those personal traits wouldn't last long in Fischer's real life.

Little House on the Prairie Set Today The Big Sky Ranch was where the classic NBC series Little House on the Prairie was shot during it nine-year run (1974 to 1983). The wooden buildings no longer exist. (One of the conditions for LHOP to use the venue stated that the buildings used in the show had to be dismantled once the series ended.) Here's what the ranch looks like today--along with what it looked like when the show was in production.

P.A. announcer Paul Harris instructs the crowd to rise for the national anthem. An instrumental version of O Canada is played. Play-by-play man Bill Hewitt sets the scene...and the puck is dropped.

TV Flop - Chuck Barris Rah-Rah Show Despite Chuck Barris and NBC constantly clashing over the content of The Gong Show, the network was desperate for any prime-time hit in the late 1970s. Therefore, in early 1978, the zany Barris was permitted to create and host The Chuck Barris Rah-Rah Show--an hour-long variety program that featured guest appearances by celebrities and encore performances by some of the more memorable oddball acts from The Gong Show. Few people saw it as it was scheduled on Tuesdays from 8 to 9 p.m--directly against the two most popular TV shows in America at the time: Happy Days and Laverne & Shirley. It was cancelled in April after eight episodes had aired. Noel Holsten, the Orlando Sentinel-Star's TV critic, wrote, "[Barris] reeled around the stage as though he'd been gobbling hallucinogenic mushrooms and looking somewhat like a subterranean fungus." Barris accepted Holsten's bad review with cheerfulness: He read it during an episode of The Gong Show. (The Gong Show was booted off NBC in June.) Here's a brief promo for the February 28 premiere episode of the Rah-Rah Show.

Dr Flame-O on The Gong Show The Gong Show's two-year daytime run on NBC ended in June 1978. In its final week, a few memorable acts were brought back as non-competitive performers just for their entertainment value. One was the silly and creative Dr. Flame-O.
